annoying little issue.

Post by Poorboymz3 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 12:14 pm

The only way for me to mark a topic as read it to click " mark all topics as read". Even when i actually read them they stay marked as unread. Any thoughts?

hmm, thats an odd one! I don't get that... but I would like an option to mark a forum as read, rather than ALL posts read

Yea, it's happened to me a couple times but it's been pretty inconsistent.

You can mark forum sections as read instead of clearing the entire forums, just open that section and there's a button on the top right.

Something I notice is the board will suddenly show all post as read, then I go around and look at the post dates to see what's new.

The read/ unread is to do with your browser and cookie settings.
If you use.the 'back' button to get out of a thread or pm, your computer will register it as 'unread' because the browser did not complete the cookie.


If you are not using the 'back' button and the.problem still persists. Try clearing your browser temp files and cookies. Then close and re open a new window. But be warned that you may not see any 'new' posts right away after doing that.

Also, your browser temp files work with the forum script to show posts since your last visit as new. If you go into the forum, then close your window or log out. Your next session will be 'new' and only posts since you logged out will be shown as such.

I hope this helps clear it up, if not feel free to post your results.

set your browser to private browsing and it cleans all cookies and wipes history every time you shut down. The down side to this is you need to remember and re enter user names and passwords every time you log in.
